Outrage! Newspapers reporting that people think teachers are shown as “idle drunks”! ‘Grange Hill’ was never like this. Teachers shown sharing joints with pupils? Having affairs with the pupils’ mothers? Disgusting. Penny Ellis from ‘Big Brother’ having the nerve to be naked at some points in her short stay in the house? Filth! It should be banned. How DARE real-life teacher Penny drop her towel after coming out of the shower? What kind of example does that set for pupils?
After all "children as young as seven watched Big Brother,” says Croydon supply teacher Maya Chatterjee. The childrens’ parents were obviously responsible adults because they knew ‘Big Brother’s reputation and realised it was shown well after the watershed, so of course it was fine for their children to watch it. I mean, ‘Big Brother’ had cameras on people 24/7 so you would not have expected nudity at any point, especially not from a teacher.
Greater London teacher Joyce Watts commented on the naked-fiasco by saying, “some of our young people may see this behaviour as perfectly acceptable in society because a teacher does this.” Children, please take heed – be careful not to drop your towel after you come out of the shower. Disciplinary action could be taken against you.
Penny, next time you take a shower, please make sure you do it fully-clothed.
